We are the women in cyber. The few protecting the many. The underrepresented, who over influence. The half of the world, who see the problems differently, who solve them uniquely. We are the women in cyber safeguarding society. Protecting us all. We need more like us. We need more like you.
Meet Gunja Sharma, an Assistant Manager in our cyber practice. Gunja is part of the Quality Risk Management team and oversees all cyber compliances for the practice. This ensures that she interacts with multiple stakeholders across various service lines.
Gunja is a Hotel Management graduate, and was working in the compliance division of a major hospital. However, when she got an opportunity to work in the compliance function for the Cyber practice at Deloitte, she jumped at the chance, and soon realised that Cyber is her calling. She calls herself an ‘accidental cyber professional’ but says that she has become so enmeshed with the cyber world that she feels this is what she was born to do.
As a young mother of a two-year-old girl, Gunja knows how important it is to have a strong support system, not just at home, but also at work. Thanks to the hybrid working model, and the immense faith that her Partners have in her, Gunja is able to seamlessly balance her professional and personal life.
Gunja’s advice to working mothers is, “Don’t get overwhelmed by the increased responsibility that the cyber world puts on your shoulders; you will be able to manage all the roles in your life with a bit of give and take. Dedicate some time to yourself and indulge in some activities that bring peace to you. As a woman, and a mother, multitasking will come naturally, so trust your instincts and believe in yourself!”
